  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 Cornish game hen (20 to 24 ounces), split lengthwise

  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons thawed orange juice concentrate

  2. In the same skillet, saute green onion and garlic until tender. Stir in broth and orange juice concentrate; pour over hen halves. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until meat is tender and juices run clear. To serve, drizzle with pan juices and sprinkle with almonds and parsley. Yield: 2 servings.
